Nice Brunch, terrible slow service!

Nice location and terrasse and food is very good! Unfortunately typically french service: slow and unfriendly. We saw 5 couples leaving without being served (and nobody cared about it). So: go here only if you have a lot time and patience! Brunch itself was really good and coffee as well (21 Euro... read more

We were strolling in the 5th and stumbled into Cafe Delmas. The place was packed, and such a nice looking place to eat outside enjoying a beautiful Sunday morning. We both had their price fixe brunch. The food was very good, especially the "French toast" . The portions were large by French standards. Yes it was a bit overpriced, but... More

We found this cafe while wondering around after our visit to the Pantheon. A great spot that looks out on a fountain and lots of people watching. My husband and I shared a healthy size bowl of tasty ravioli in cream sauce, french bread, and a bottle of wine. Waiters were friendly and attentive and found it reasonable compared to... More

Lovely. Great food and setting, excellent service. But as others here have said, oddly expensive. Tea and coffee were both almost more than our food.

We each ordered the 3 egg omelet with ham and cheese, freshly squeezed orange juice, and café au lait. All came with a basket of bread and a carafe of water. Accompanying the omelet was a spinach and arugula salad topped with a light vinaigrette. Everything was delicious and the omelet outstanding! The service was courteous and prompt. The final... More

The location of this restaurant is great, and we thought it would be a nice place to have a morning coffee and croissant. And while the coffee was very good, two coffees and two croissants cost 16 Euros. Go across the street to the bakery, and get a coffee and pastry for less than half the price. This restaurant is...

We chose this cafe to sit down to have lunch and a drink on a sunny day. Perfect location we thought...but we didn't consider the waiter. Incredible how one employee with his bad mood can make a shop losing paying clients. We left before we ordered... due to a lack of customer orientation and friendliness... this cafe is clearly on...

It's the sort of place where I'd rather have a coffee or a drink or a desert, Good location. Sometimes, from your seat, you can enjoy watching some street show or listening to a live band performing juat in front of the place

All is in the title! Avoid, flee, run away! It looks attractive but this is a trap for tourists! The burgers are 2 ridiculously small pieces and horribly expensive.

Went there with friends last Sunday. We booked a table and asked for a nice spot where we would be comfortable with a 10 months kid. The bar is place on a nice square of the 5th arrondissement, directly on the famous rue Mouffetard. We had a very warm welcome, the high chair for the kid was ready, the table... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
